Election Issue #1

I'll cross-post with the Dryden Dems site:

If there's any one election issue that will resonate countywide this year, it is surely hydrofracking. The Tompkins County Council of Governments Task Force on Gas Drilling just presented a session on "What Gas Drilling Sites Might Look Like in the Town of Dryden"; Living in Dryden has the synopsis and a link to the slides. And this Wednesday, July 20, at 7 PM, the Dryden Town Board is holding a public hearing on banning hydrofracking and all related activities in the Town of Dryden. Get there early to get a seat or to sign up to speak; discussion will likely be lively. Here is a brief take on where the town board is now with the issue. The proposed amendments are here. Get informed; your candidates will certainly be talking about this through the summer and into election season.

Dryden Dems will be posting about additional local issues as time goes on.
